Hustler Wins Case Over Nancy Benoit Pics, Shane Douglas Note, Shane Helms, More
- The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sided with Hustler magazine in a case against the family of Nancy Toffolini Benoit. The magazine had published 24-year-old nude photos of Nancy after she was murdered by husband Chris Benoit in 2007. The magazine claimed that they could print the photos because they were newsworthy, while the family argued that they didn't have permission to publish the pictures. A jury had decided to penalize the magazine $19.6 million in 2011, which was later reduced to $250,000. That fine was then vacated after the court ruled that there wasn't enough evidence to support the penalty.
